Bach: Wo gehest du hin?, BWV 166

July 8, 2017


[Cantata Sunday]

Bach wrote Wo gehest du hin? (Where are you going?), BWV 166 in this first year in Leipzig. The cantata quotes the Gospel reading 'But now I go to Him who sent me, and none of you asks me, "Where are you going?"' The aria here has an unmistakable dance character, portrays in its shaking figures the laughter of good fortune, which is also to be heard in the long coloraturas and trills of the voice. (Dürr 2005: 317)
